I created this PowerPoint using a variety of sources. The PowerPoint has a heavy focus on Shakespeare; three of the slides are for a quick introduction to The Taming of the Shrew (themes, performance start date, and character web). The PowerPoint could be used for an introduction to any Shakespeare play. Since you will be able to edit it after download, you may delete The Taming of the Shrew slides. I have included a works cited on some of the slides to show the resources that I have used to compile this useful tool.
